Let us know how you like the Pro Fender stuff. I know more than a few of us have been curious about it.

Always have a great time at The Flats! It was a slop fest though, high RPMs to get anywhere. I have more mud in the jeep than I do on the exterior .

Not very many pictures today, but here a few:













Proof that it actually does get some dirt on it




My dad took his out for it's maiden voyage, I was really pleased with what it did on 32"s open/open.

Looks like it was a good time. How do your PB Rockers perform on the wet rocks?

They grab like crazy.... as well as a tire can on wet muddy rocks anyway. I attempted obstacles and had friends on 39" sticky Krawlers and 39 1/2" Iroks literally not get one inch farther up the ledge/rock pile, etc than I did. That's not me boasting- none of us made it up the two obstacles I'm referring to. But it is a testimate to the Pitbull Rockers and how well they did.

The mud was pretty equalizing today.

They are very reasonably priced! There is a good bit of info out there where a few shops have taken apart the Profender shock or air bump and compared them to Fox, etc and had real favorable reviews. One of the things I am trying to help them with is with is some real world feedback from both weekends like this one and races like the ones coming up. I'll post every detail I can once these things start arriving next week.

Thanks. I'm really contemplating on if I want to pick up a set of Pitbulls for my next set of tires.

What width and offset are your Racelines? I have the same wheels in 15x8 and Im wanting a set in 17". Do you have any issues with rubbing the Antirock? I like my Racelines a lot (even though they were fairly heavily damaged at the factory, not in shipping, and they wouldnt even return my calls about it) and would like to get another set, but Im afraid the 4" BS wont be enough.

They do rub on the antirock, I've been looking at spacers until I get wider axles, but didn't want any more added stress on my current Rubi 44's.

More leverage on the joints, etc.

Right on. I'm in the same boat. I'm going to bend my Antirock toward the frame just after the "clamp" end of it, then flatten it back out. I wish Raceline made a 3.25 or 3.5 BS 17 like the 15. They just don't know how many sales they have lost not having anything but 4" on the 9.5s.

You have a ARB in the rear now correct? Is it 35 spline?

I'm going to do those heavy duty ball joints Poly Performance sells.

Do you have your front axle trussed?

Thanks man.

If the Antirock bending is not sufficient, I'm going to get extended studs, and a slip on spacer.

Nice wheelin pics Jay! It looked like a lot of fun and I'm extremely jealous. I haven't been wheeling since March and I can't wait to get back out there. Thanks for the inspiration my friend!

Oh, and just because your tires are muddy doesn't mean your jeep is, still looks pristine to me lol

Quick Q for ya Jay. I know that your rig is typically trailered to your wheeling places, but how much street duty does it see? The reason I'm wondering is the tires & how they're wearing. How many miles do you have on them & how's the tread wearing?

I'm torn between a few tires right now & the PB's are one I've considered, but am wondering what kind of mileage I might get for split duty wheeling/street.
